time job to help with the paying of bills.
Joe’s father, paternal uncle, paternal grandparents, and maternal
grandmother were alcoholics. His father also abused him. Joe began to
drink when he was in high school. His drinking gradually increased,
and now, he consumes a case of beer every day.
Joe and his wife often fight over Joe’s drinking. Joe has missed work
